I use Go Daddy as my domain site and a while ago they starting giving free Linux hosting (and Windows) with every domain name.
Since I get Free Hosting with Every Domain I thought I would test it out by thowing up a quick wordpress site. I put up the 2nd domain I ever bought Pereda.org.
A decade or so ago pereda.org was a family tree website for my family, I became paranoid about all that info in the open and took down the site. I am not sure what the site will become, but it is my testing ground for now.
